We stopped in here because we were hungry and saw the Trip Adviser Certificate of Excellence Award Posted. The food was very good and the service was good as well. We recommend this place for a quick easy meal. They are adjacent to Mega.

Had dinner there last night. Service was excellent, lots of servers that speak English and a English menu. They started the meal with a free sampling of shrimp soup and chips and sauces. Nice touch. Tried octopus for the first time, was very good. Had the fish with cactus and my husband had the shrimp wrapped in bacon, both were... More

We tried the Aguachiles here, shrimp cooked in citrus and chile juices. They were fresh and tasty as well as a bit spicy. I would definitely like to return to try other menu items. This place is clean with good service. It is walking distance from 5th avenue.

We just arrived in Playa Del Carmen and had a Taco craving. This Resturant is next door to where we are staying. We ordered 3 different kinds of Taco's- Arrechera, shrimp and fish. They were to die for- so good

Spent a few days in a Playa del Carmen and after the first time we had to go back. The food is delicious. I highly recommend their seafood cocktails. The service was great too.

After going through an extensive list of the best places in Playa del Carmen, I found that Chiltepin was one of them .... The menu is nothing special, the typical seafood you'll find in so many other restaurants of that kind, such as tostadas, tacos and hamburgers. The Tostada Chiltepin was a big disappointment, it was more cucumber than shrimps... More

This is a fantastic Taco restaurant away from the tourist drag. It's mainly frequented by Mexicans which is a relief in Playa del Carmen sometimes. Staff were extremely welcoming and helpful with recommendations. I'm a non meat eater so they adjusted some of the shrimp and fish tacos and they were outstanding (the GF had the skirt steak Taco and... More

Today was our 3rd time there and we love it more and more. Today we were lucky again to have Brenda as our waiter. She is amazing! This time she recommended us delicious tostadas that were not on the menu. It was great! Actually, all guys we've met there are super friendly and very professional. We are definitely coming back.

Chiltepin has always been the best place for fresh sheafood, a few beers, and even a few Tequilas into early hours of the evening. The service is friendly but super attentive, delicious sauces, oysters and their octopus is to die for. They have wines by the glass and live music a couple of nights a week. You must go!
